nothing either. if we had another opportunity of newtown, where a number of people got killed and it could have been prevented had we done something. we would regret doing nothing. my proposal is the middle proposal to do something but avoid doing things that creates harm than good. i have offered to give free training to the principal and the designee in each school. we would train them in when to shoot, not to shoot, how to lockup the gun. >> what if the principal or the designate, and he or she is in the gym and the gunman comes through the front door of the school? what good does that do? >> part of it is to have a good communication system. so if there's an emergency in any part of the school. they can get to the location quickly. >> the sheriff is planning mobilize a posse, a marked patrol car will be stationed outside the school. that a deterrent? >> you know, i don't really know. i'm hoping that the sheriff will work with me, three sheriffs already have agreed to work with me in the training of one person per school. and the sheriff was the sheriff for my home county. so, i'm hopin
to hold a major news conference in the washington, d.c. area on friday, december 21. after the newtown massacre, democratic congressman released this statement, i have been largely silent on the issue of gun violence over the past six years, and i now am as sorry for that as i am for the families who lost so much in this most recent, but sadly not isolated tragedy. i will not be silent any longer. joining me now, congressman john yarmouth, congressman, you have been in congress for six years from kentucky. difficult place to be elected from if you're on the wrong side of the nra. what do you believe the congress should do now and what are you prepared to support in congress? >> well, there are many things i'm prepared to support. the things the president has talked about. the re-institution of the assault weapons ban. limitation on high capacity magazines. the -- eliminating the gun show loophole. all of these things are very common sense things. actually things that the membership of the nra supports, which is ironic. most of these things are things that can have an impact, but more i
for staying with us tonight. >> well, hi, chris, we're here in the newtown area of connecticut, just nearby a couple of miles from sandy hook elementary where the shooting, tragic shooting, took place earlier today. at this hour, hundreds of rez dents are gathering at a nearby catholic church for a vigil. holding a prayer for those who have lost their lives today, those youngest lives, anywhere between kind eergarten and four grade where those student were shot today. they're holding a prayer vigil and trying to comfort the families that they were told lost their loved ones in this town. it's a small new england town in this area. a very rural area in the central part of connecticut here. and the school, certainly k through 4 that with mentioned, we don't have the identifications or the ages of the school children and their names that are being released. what we are being told is that investigators are processing that school now. they will be dealing with identification of those students and trying to return them as governor malloy says of connecticut, back to their families so they can mou

died. and in the case of the school in newtown, we know that that's what happened again, even in a greater magnitude. i think we're at a point now where people said enough. every grandparent, like myself, every parent who has a young child, is looking at the situation and saying, we cannot let this happen again. so i believe that the american people are going to take a different look at what happened last friday. and they're going to demand, as they should, that those of us who have been sent to congress, to make action and to do what's right by our country, that we're going to actually do something. and we must do something. and that's what my commitment is, as i think are many more members of congress' commitments. including people who have traditionally supported -- the national rifle association has supported by it. to make it clear, i'm a second amendment supporter. i believe that's a good amendment for our country. but we have to move beyond that. these weapons have no place in the school. as you your previously guest suggested. we have to deal with this problem on two l

to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there'll be fewer atrocities like the one in newtown for any of the lesser-known tragedies that visit small towns and big cities all across america every day. since friday morning, police officer was gunned down in memphis leaving four children without their mother. two officers were killed outside a grocery store in topeka. the woman was shot and killed inside a las vegas casino. three people were shot inside an alabama hospital. a four-year-old was caught in a drive-by in missouri. taken off life support just yesterday. each one of these americans was a victim of the everyday gun violence that takes the lives of more than 10,000 americans every year. violence that we cannot accept as routine. so i will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. we won't prevent them all, but that can't be an excuse not to try. it won't be easy, but that can't be an excuse not to try. and i will not be able to do it by myself. ultimately if this effort is to succeed, it will require the help

saw in newtown. those kinds of tragedies. as i said before we see tragedies every single night in this country on the streets of this city and d.c. and chicago and l.a. and other -- >> can you give me a perspective on how powerful the nra really is in the republican party because we had michael bloomberg, mayor of new york city, on "meet the press" last week. he said they are not that powerful. it is -- they are just -- ed rendell, former governor of pennsylvania. he got elected three times and said they are a piper tiger. >> i agree with the mayor. i said this for a very long time. the myth of the power of the nra is much greater than the actual power of the nra. you have to remember in -- talking about grover norquist and pledge or nra and -- their views, and -- you know, there are a lot of members of congress who are ideologically lined with the views of the organization. less about what the nra can do to them than they agree on most issues. they are getting that support. but if you go out and speak clearly to your constituents about what your views are on the issues and --
's one of these tragedies, in newtown, connecticut, there's a run on firearms. >> yes. across the country. we have places reporting the highest single day sales on record. >> and they are also reporting highest first purchase sales on record. so people are, people are understanding the fact that, to an extent, lapierre is right. once we have missed on our first, second and third redundant areas of security, and it comes to guns, the only thing that can stop a guy with a gun, a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. >> is it not totally a dystopian vision? if where we are headed, if the solution is, look, just arm everyone -- >> that's not the solution. >> but if the solution is the only thing to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun and we say we are going to miss the redundancies, then the idea of putting more and more weapons in people's hands, particularly if you're not, there's no training, right? there's no licensing. >> no, there's training. >> no, but there's no requirement for it. >> i'm just saying if a concealed carry permit there is. >> not everywhere there'

elementary school in newtown, connecticut. and at this press conference, they said they would offer meaningful contributions to help make sure that nothing like sandy hook ever happens again. it seems like a big deal that the nra did that, right? they never really say things like that after there are shootings, after mass shootings. they never, for example, call press conferences. it's not how they usually handle it. would this actually be a new and different message from the nra? was the nra prepared to change, sing a different tune? at the press conferences this morning, they were still teeing us up, right? we were ready to hear new never before ground from the nra. the nation tuned in expectantly. what would happen? >> at the end of this conference, we will not be taking questions, but next week we will be available to any of you who are interested in talking about these or other issues of interest to you. so contact us, please, at this point. thank you very much. wayne? >> good morning. the national rifle association, four million mothers, father, sons and daughters joined the n
